I have done Dynamic Soaring in over 55mph, and quad flying in over 25mph with the right equipment.

RC Timer A2208-17 1100KV Outrunner updated design

I just ordered myself 1 replacement RC timer motor. They seem to have changed the design slightly - there are now 3 threaded mounting holes in the top so that you can use a bolt on prop adapter if you reverse the shaft. Some people find the bolt on prop adapters better for multicopters.

I can only hope they haven't changed much else or my quadcopter might fly funny.

The picture below shows the new design next to one of the old ones.

One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

Has the design changed much or is it just the holes in the top ? the spigot looks bigger but that could just be the picture, is there a difference in weight ? I think as long as the windings are the same it should perform the same. I bought some of the bolt on prop adapters and while they are good they are more expensive to replace if you bend one and I couldn't get the shaft out of the motor bell even with the grub screw totally removed I couldn't budge the shaft with out using enough force to damage it, so I ended up grinding the ends of with a dremmel, some thing I wouldn't recommend, keep the shafts as they are and use other types of prop adapters  ~~

There is probably a disclaimer on the site stating that the design can change with out prior notice  :rolleyes:

teslahed

The spigot does look a little different - the edges of the metalwork seem slightly cleaner cut on the edges. None of the other details appear different except for the mounting holes in the top.

I wonder how long it will be before rctimer start selling 'multicopter' rated motors with shorter shafts, longer wires, bolt on prop adapters and an extra few quid on the price tag, similar to the escs?

They already do the 2830 range with extended wires  ~~ and they sell the bolt on prop adapters too  :rolleyes:

I really like the look of those new motors I must give them a try  ~~

Just looked at the reviews on there website of these new motors. A few people saying they are not balanced. Does anyone know of any other good motor for a 450 quad at around the same price mark. $17.
Cheers

Hi Vidal have you read bad reports about these motors http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo=goods_details.dwt&goodsid=813&productname= or the 2208/17 motors the thread was originally about ?

Hey gaza07
The reviews are for the link you just sent. Alto the dates on the reviews are for the end of last year.

Gaza07

oh yea so I see the review sections tend to be empty so got out of the habit of looking, to be honest though there are only 3 people that have written 4 reviews from what would probably be 1000s of customers,
when those motors first got introduced last year I remember quite a few people saying they were going to get some, but haven';t heard anything from any of the people that did, I assumed they were happy with them as if they were really crap they would probably have said,
Anyone running these motors got any comments on them, what are they like smooth powerful or just crap ?

Ive always found the rctimer 2830 range reliable, quite a lot of people are using the 1000kv ones, its well worth getting the bolt on type prop adapters for them though  ~~
